Once again Swift has delivered a great reading experience. This sequel to ALTDORF (The Forest Knights) picks up where we left the main characters at the end of book one.
Set in medieval times with a great balance between fiction and historical fact, this book certainly doesn't disappoint when it comes to keeping the reader interested and involved in the story.
It was intrigueing to see the way the romantic triangle evolved, only to come to sudden halt, due to certain visions and misinterpreted dreams. Going by the ending it must mean there is a third part on the way, I can only hope so.
Kudos to the author for Pirmin's special ending or closure. It was sincere and warm without being overly dramatic.
As always the tale flowed smoothly with solid characters and realistic scenarios. The story links back once or twice to remind us exactly where and who the Swyzer children were and the adults they have become. Bonded by mutual pain, suffering and warfare. They still stand as one.

After reading the first in the series I was eager to read this Book 2. It picks up exactly where Book 1 left off. A thoroughly enjoyable read, however where the author finishes does this mean the end of the series or will he be able to carry on a series with a lot of potential? To understand this you will obviously have to read the book and decide for yourself.

J.K. Swift has done a fairly solid job of recreating the William Tell legend, and with it covering the creation of Switzerland in the two volume Forest Knights series (the previous volume is ALTDORF, a Historical Novel of Switzerland (The Forest Knights: Book 1)). And while the author himself admits to lots of it being his own interpretation, the books will at least give you a fairly good overview of the times and the main events.

The book starts where Altdorf left of, with the preparation for the Habsuburg revenge for the loss of the Altdorf fortress to the 'Eidgenossen' - the Swiss locals. The cast of characters remains the same as in the first book and one gets a slightly druid influenced (and with some other artistic freedoms) retelling of the preparations to the Battle of Morgarten, the battle itself and the subsequent consequences. You also get a stylized account of how the Swiss mercenaries came to be, how they came to be organized in the way they were and where the choice of halberd and pike as a weapon comes from.

The author manages to weave in several personal stories into this historical background and the book overall comes with a good balance between action and scene setting that will likely appeal to a fairly wide readership - it certainly is a very quick and pleasant read.

If you enjoy getting a feel for different times / places through lightly fictionalized accounts, I am sure that this book does a solid job of giving you just that for the creation of Switzerland.

could not put it down - it left me wanting to know what happened next. I believe JK Swift is intending stories of when knights where children = I'd like to be kept informed on any follow up stories.

even though Swift introduced a supernatural element, it didn,t take away the historical struggle of the Swiss peoples agains the Austrian occupiers. Like the first volume, I could not put it down.
